NEW INTEGRITY FREEFORM: an evolution in Freeform design.
Integrity Freeform Lens Technologies
Basic is the entry-level technology to make digital lenses. Progressive lenses made with this technology will have the progressive surface on the back of the lens, and a simple curve, typically a sphere, on the front side. The progressive surface is calculated using IOT's Steady Methodology providing improved performance over conventional progressive lenses, with the accuracy and flexibility of the digital freeform process.
The most advanced technology to make digital lenses. Advanced-level technology uses both IOT's Digital Ray-Path® 2 and Steady Methodology to take into account the real measured or default wearer position of the lens and the natural movements of the human eye. The result of this innovative calculation method is a progressive lens that is personalized and provides better vision in all zones of the lens.
Camber Technology combines the Advanced technology with the unique, continuously changing surface of the specially designed lens blank allows expanded reading zones with improved peripheral vision. When combined with a back surface design using IOT's Digital Ray-Path® 2 and IOT's Steady+ Methodology, both surfaces work together to accommodate an expanded power range, offer better cosmetics for many prescriptions, and yield user-preferred near vision performance.
LENS DESIGN SELECTION MADE EASY
When you think of choosing a free-form lens, the sheer number of designs, all the marketing hype, the continuous releases of "new technology", and the lack of objective data comparing one to another, can be enough to make your head explode.

Man, I'm so glad I found you guys. I was so engrossed in Essilor, I didn't know this Integrity free-form stuff was out there. All I do is ask my patient what their priority is for progressive zones. Then I call you and relay that info and tell you to pick a digital design. It is so easy selling progressive lenses now and my patients are LOVING it!
Integrity freeform designs by IOT have No limits on material, treatment, and coating combinations. If it is available in single vision you can have it in a freeform progressive.
Choosing Freeform Lenses Made Easy
1. Pick a lifestyle design :
2. Choose a technology level :
(What do these mean?)
Enjoying landscapes, movies on the big scree, etc. requires a wide, clear far field. Rebel [Distance] freeform lens is the solution for people who spend much time outdoors and need good distance vision.
Ideal for myopes.
The Rogue [Near] freeform lens reduces astigmatism and extends the region of the near field improving comfort at near. Ideal for expert wearers with an intensive use of near vision.
Ideal for hyperopes.
Renegade [Intermediate] is a general use freeform design specially created for first-time progressive wearers those that have had non-adapts in the past.
Resolve [Balanced] is the freeform lens series for the ECP or office that insists on a single, go-to, progressive for most presbyopes.
Specialty Integrity Freeform Lens Designs
Radical [Single Vision]
The Radical is a free-form single vision lens design using IOT's latest Digital Ray-Path 2 technology. High powers, complex single vision prescriptions, and sport frames benefit greatly from free form design. The more difficult the prescription, the more it can benefit from free-form processing.
Revise is specially developed for small frames, offering more options and flexibility to select the ideal progression length perfectly adapted to small 'B' measurement frames.
The best lens for office and computer work. Reboot offers an extremely wide intermediate and near visual field and easy adaptation. Ideal for mid-age professionals who spend a lot of time working at near-intermediate distance (office workers, chef, musicians, etc.). Available in 1.3 m, 2 m, and 4 m designs providing clear vision up to the given distance .
Road Trip [Drive]
Designed for driving, Road Trip lenses have an enhanced distance area for clear vision of the road an reduced peripheral astigmatism to allow viewing mirrors with minimal head movement.
Integrity Rush is engineered for sports vision. Rush allows comfortable viewing of watches, heart rate monitors, bike computers, compasses, etc. and is compatible with larger sizes and steeper curves found in sport frames.
When working at near distances, muscles surrounding the crystalline lens become tired often resulting in pain, dryness, and headaches. The Relieve design relaxes the eye muscles, reducing symptoms with a small add in the bottom of the lens.
We also make occupational lenses with a flat top segment on the top and a digital progressive on the bottom.
What are freeform lenses?
Freeform lenses represent a significant advancement in the field of ophthalmic lenses, offering a level of customization and visual clarity that traditional lens manufacturing techniques cannot match. These lenses are crafted using sophisticated computer-aided design and manufacturing technologies, allowing for precise control over the lens surface, resulting in a high degree of lens customization tailored to individual wearer's needs.
The design of freeform lenses is based on a detailed understanding of how the lens will be used by the wearer. Unlike conventional lenses, which are typically made with a limited range of standard prescriptions, freeform lenses are customized not just for the prescription but also for other variables such as the frame choice, the position of the wearer's eyes within the frame, and how the glasses are worn on the face. This level of customization is achieved by incorporating detailed measurements into the lens design process, allowing for optimization of the lens for each individual's unique visual requirements.
The manufacturing of freeform lenses employs advanced software and precision milling equipment. The software plays a crucial role, converting the detailed prescription data into specific instructions for lens production. This data includes not only the basic prescription but also complex information about lens geometry tailored to the wearer's vision. The software calculates the ideal lens surface, taking into account various factors such as the desired lens thickness, the size and shape of the frame, and the way the frame fits the wearer. It is important to note that the end result can vary from lab to lab for the same freeform lens design depending upon the lab processes, equipment, and attention to detail. Of course we recommend using a conscientious independent optical lab like Laramy-K
The equipment used in the production of freeform lenses is equally sophisticated. High-precision lathes and milling machines, guided by the software, sculpt the lens material with extreme accuracy. This process allows for the creation of complex lens surfaces that are nearly impossible to achieve with traditional lens grinding techniques. The result is a lens with a surface that is customized at every point, providing clearer, sharper, and more natural vision than conventional lenses.
The benefits of freeform lenses are numerous. They offer a wider field of clear vision, reduced glare and halo effects, and improved night vision. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with high prescriptions or complex visual needs, such as progressive lens wearers. Additionally, freeform lenses can be thinner and lighter, making them more comfortable to wear, especially for those requiring strong prescriptions.
